Well, yesterday I got to hang out with Josh for the evening. I hadn’t seen him in a very long time so it was good to catch up. He’s been having a lot of fun out west and has returned a more “realistic” version of himself. It’s funny how much we’re still alike even after not getting to hang out for three years. Anyway, we went over to Boston Billards to shoot some pool and catch up in general. It was fun. On the way home Josh gave me a street cone. I won’t mention how we actually got the street cone. He also hooked me up with a copy of Windows XP Pro for $30. I can’t fathom such a deep discount for employees. I’m not saying its bad, it’s certainly good for the employees and their families. Kinda sad how normal cutomers get a 1000% mark-up though. After pool we went back to Josh’s house and played XBox for a little while. It was fun.
Anyway. I think I’m going to wipe the drive later tonight and do a clean install with the new copy of XP. I also got my GearGrip Pro last night. Very cool. For those that don’t know, it’s a big safety harness/carrying strap for your computer. Now I can just pick this ol’ giant tower up and carry it around rather than grabbing it with both hands and struggling to get to my car. Should come in very handy for Game Night.
After a night of catching up and hanging out I had to get up around 8:30 today and drive my brother to Southboro (outside of Boston) to meet up with him friend. He of course couldn’t drive himself. Something out not wanting to leave his van there or using to much gas or something stupid. That took up most of my morning. Anyway, I’m off to play with my ‘puter. Later.
You should post a review of the gear grip to chocobo.cx.
ooooh. good idea.
